Until recently, the domain name public DNS was parked partially, and used internally on private DNS for devices to collect IoT sensor data and geospacial information as part of a research and development effort.
Due to the high amount of interest and volume of inquiries about purchasing the domain name, this page has been set up, and if there is an extremely high volume of interest, it may have been listed on various Multiple Listing Services for domain names to where it can be purchased from most registrars.
Domain names cost money to acquire for our use, and have costs to reconfiguration of our sensor activity, so discussions with the current registrant and owner should occur at an amount that was pragmatically set by the owners to be one which would convince or inspire them to consider moving to use of another domain name.
While awaiting that, the name shall remain in use by the owners.
